Lindsey Graham Practices to become Whiner In Chief

Graham has already started "whining" practice. Yesterday he appeared on CNN:

  • Graham: Well, I think he said something that has brought people who hare frustrated about immigration system to life, but he also said it in a way that's going to kill my party.
    Here's the problem with the Republican Party nationally. We're getting 27% of the Hispanic vote, we're getting less than 10% of the African American vote and about 25-26% of the Asian vote. You'll never convince me that we've gone from 44% of the Hispanic vote, now down to 27 if it were not for the rhetoric around the immigration debate. This is a moment for the party...
    When most illegal immigrants were rapists and drug dealers and there may be some among them who were good, that is reinforcing a narrative between the Republican party and the Hispanic community that is going to destroy our ability win a presidential election. And the part needs to be clear on how we handle this.
When you don;t have answers, you just whine. He has been  senator for several years. Maybe if he would have pushed to have the issues addressed then, he wouldn't have to whine about it now.
